The College Course Materials Market Trends & Forecast annual reports from Simba Information provide an overview of the changing market for instructional resources in higher education in the U.S. This new edition continues that tradition in two parts. The first part, State of College Course Materials 2016—2017, is now available and focuses on two main areas:
current landscape conditions in the higher education market and
the competitive environment for publishers and distributors of instructional resources for college programs.
Simba provides both sizing and context for the market segments of new course materials: new textbooks (print), digital media (including etextbooks) and used textbooks.
The report discusses market segment sales estimates for 2015 and 2016 and market segment projections for 2017.
The second half—College Course Materials Trends & Outlook 2018-2020—to be published at the end of 2017/beginning of 2018—will update trends building steam in 2017 that are likely to persist into the next several years. The report also will provide the outlook for the higher education publishing industry and sales segment projections through 2020.
